After Midnight 1989 5

First story:  The Old Dark House – A couple gets stranded on a dark road and a big surprise is coming to them.  DJ said that this is the reason he doesn’t like surprises.  

Second story:  A Night On the Town – It’s a dog eat people kind of world sometimes.  Message: don’t go into a bad neighborhood and act fucking stupid.

Third story:  All Night Operator – A telephone operator gets really creepy phone calls from a stranger.  It’s sort of a “When A Stranger Calls” like story, but we think this ending is cooler.  This was our favorite story of the three.

The wraparound story, Allison’s story, unfortunately sucked.  They gave us a few decent horror stories and then they tie them together with bullshit.  It’s a shame.  It would have received a higher score if it was done more successfully.  

It was a decent movie.  Nothing spectacular, but worth a watch if you have some time to kill.  

We agree on this score:  54/100


About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
